University of Central Florida quarterback Dillon Gabriel will be out indefinitely after suffering a broken clavicle on the final play of the Knights’ loss Friday night to Louisville.

UCF (2-1) announced Saturday that Gabriel would not need surgery, but it provided no timetable for his return. The junior is one of the top quarterbacks in the country.

The Knights’ odds to win it all dropped at DraftKings to 500/1 as of Saturday, tied with Northwestern, Miami (FL), NC State, Memphis, Washington, Wake Forest, Louisiana-Lafayette and Boise State.

Gabriel led the nation in passing yards last season and completed 68.7% of his passes for 814 yards and nine touchdowns.

The 20-year-old from Hawaii was injured with the Knights trailing by a touchdown in the final seconds deep in their own territory as they tried to make a desperate lateral play.

Gabriel was slammed to the turf on his left throwing shoulder while trying to keep the ball alive.

UCF lost that game to Louisville 42-35. They had been 7.5-point favorites and -250 on the moneyline.
